Alexandria schools feel pressure over Obama school speech
ALEXANDRIA -- Should schools show a back-to-school address by President Barack Obama this coming Tuesday?
Some parents and groups are pressuring schools not to show the televised live address, claiming that political agendas should be kept out of public classrooms.
According to U.S. Secretary of Education, Obama's speech won't be political. He said it "will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals and take responsibility for their learning."
